The holiday season is here, and for many, that means lots of parties with lots of yummy food.  A good option for anyone trying to eat a bit more healthily this season is my pomegranate chocolate bites.  They are individually portioned, pack an antioxidant kick, are easy to make and pretty to look at!   This perfect low-calorie holiday treat would be a welcome addition to any holiday party you might have coming up!

I love love love peppermint bark.  Especially with dark chocolate!  Sadly, it’s not the healthiest of options, but I find it hard to resist when I make a big batch.  Enter these pomegranate bites: they satisfy my sweet tooth but I can have a few of them without having too many calories.  What a win!  The raw pomegranate seeds make such a delightful flavor and texture contrast to the chocolate too.  The seeds burst when you bite down on them, and the flavors mix, and your taste buds will be happy!

These are also easily customizable, based on your own preferences.  In this batch, I used pomegranate seeds and toasted coconut.  Another option might be pistachios and pomegranate seeds, or even just sea salt and pomegranate seeds.  If you try these, comment below and let us know which combination you used!

Did I mention how easy these are?  Literally just a few minutes of prep, and you will be well on your way to this yummy treat!

Start by melting your chocolate, seeding your pomegranate (see here for my easy way to get those seeds out quickly!), and preparing whatever other toppings you choose.
